We Invest In You
Choice Overseas Homes is not about selling you a house. We make dreams a reality by helping you find an affordable holiday home in a top tourist destination.
The reason we can do this is because our group of three companies are with you every step of the way. We aren’t in this for a quick buck, we want to build a long-term, mutually beneficial relationship with you, which will last for years to come.
To show how much we value building relationship, when you purchase your home through us you join our rental management programme for free. This costs $3,000 for clients who have not bought their home with us.
As a family-owned business, we have a friendly and approachable style and we put our customers first. We started 17 years ago when we bought our own holiday home in Orlando – so we have been in your shoes and we know how to help you get the best out of this.
We will take you through the three stages of the process step-by-step
Buying a home in your own country can be daunting enough, let alone in another country that has different laws and procedures. We have the experience and know-how to navigate the system. We also know which location and which type of property to invest in to get the most out of the short-term rental market.
We know that in order to make owning a holiday home work for you financially, it's likely that you'll need to rent it out when you aren't there. We can take of this for you. We have almost two decades' worth of experience renting holiday homes in Orlando and we know just how to market your property to tourists.
We will also keep your house in good condition, clean the pool, maintain the gardens and make sure it's ready for its next guests. You don’t have to worry about a thing.
Don’t just take our word for it

Properties in Orlando
At Choice we specialise in the sale of rental homes no more than 20 minutes from Walt Disney World and the other Orlando attractions.
Florida attracts over 50 million visitors per year and is home to some of the most exciting theme parks in the world. Add this to the championship golf courses, fantastic value shopping, Atlantic and Gulf coast beaches and the superb year-round climate and it is easy to see why it is such a popular holiday destination.
The two most popular locations for a holiday home are Kissimmee and Davenport. This is because they are the only two areas that are zoned for short term rental that offer easy access to the Orlando attractions. Whether you buy a villa in Kissimmee, or a town home in Davenport, it is very important you choose a home with easy access to Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, Sea World and the shops, bars and restaurants in the area.
